How to prevent blood clots after plastic surgery

Whenever there’s a surgical procedure, there is always the risk of having blood clots. Though this might sound inevitable, there are proven things that you do in order to avoid them from happening to you.

Whatever cosmetic procedure you’ve undergone, you need to keep in mind that bedrest is not the best thing to do. Of course, you would be recommended to rest but your surgeon not necessarily mean you have to lie completely still as on moments like this, the blood in your body tends to pool.

If you do bedrest, your blood circulation will be affected. This condition can trigger a cascade of reactions that turns into a blood clot in the leg. You must be informed that when a blood clot occurs in your leg, it can go to the lung and create a pulmonary embolism, which can essentially cause death.

Staying active after the surgery is recommended but it comes with restrictions well. You can perform light activities such as walking around for about 5-10 minutes with a 3-4 hour interval. If you are feeling thirsty, get in the kitchen yourself and drink. Do not pamper yourself but avoid rigorous exercise and other kinds of heavy activities. This can help you avoid or lessen the risk of having a blood clot. You would also be advised to drink a lot of fluids such as Gatorade. It has electrolytes and nutrients that will help keep you not only hydrated but also prevent blood clots. When you keep yourself hydrated, you prevent the blood from getting thick.

The use of blood thinners is a topic of great discussion in the plastic surgery community. I tend to use blood thinners only during tummy tucks, but not for buttock augmentation. Tummy tucks require more effort from the patient to recover. There is more pain, causing patients to prefer bedrest which is not a good thing.
